Information Services provides black and white, colour and large scale plotting printing facilities.
Specialist colour printing is also available on a HP 9500N colour laser printer. This printer has a resolution of 600 dpi and can be used to produce plots on A3 and A4 paper, as well as A4 transparencies. Files (on CD or USB pen) can be printed from standard software packages such as Word or PowerPoint.
Other specialist printing facilities include a large scale plotter (e.g. for poster production). This is a high quality Hewlett Packard 5500PS plotter, that is used solely for the purposes of research, learning and teaching within the University. It has a resolution of 600 dots per inch (dpi), providing a high level of precision. Plots are up to A0 in size i.e. 34 inches x 44 inches and can be printed on standard paper (90gm) or satin-finish photo paper, in order to give high quality, glare-free output. Large scale plots can be printed from standard software packages such as PowerPoint, Word or Photoshop. Files in the following formats are also acceptable - postscript, encapsulated postscript, pdf, jpeg, gif, png and tiff. Files can be emailed as an attachment to email@example.com, along with details of the size of output and paper type required. A staff/student number and a contact phone number should also be included.
Points to Note:
- There are times when the plotter is heavily used and users are advised to submit the poster for printing at least 4 working days before it is required.
- Information Services does not have the means either to trim the output to size or to laminate the output.
- The ink on the plotter output will run if it is wet, such as when exposed to rain. When collecting the output, the user should bring something, such as a telescopic drawing tube, to protect the plot.
- Posters will not be given out until payment has been received.
